Anyone experienced sickness from you child during the test unexpectedly. Can they resit the exam? The invigilators were there to comfort but the pain was too much.

I doubt they will allow a resist as the DC has seen at least part of the test.

However it should be down on the invigilator's log that the child was taken ill, so that could be used in any appeal as far as I understand. Obviously some schools are very difficult to win appeals for. It might be worth asking for that now.

You won't be able to appeal until after allocations day in March.

Was your DC feeling fine before going in for the test?

For the CSSE exam, unless it has changed for this year, the rule is that you cannot retake any paper that you have started. So if you are taken ill during Ovid first paper, or in the break, you would be allowed to take the second paper on the reserve date. I don't know about any other areas - have you had look at the information on the website where you registered your DS to sit the exam?

If it was unexpected, you need to ask yourself if it was stress or a panic attack. If it was either then you may need to rethink full stop.

As others have said, it is unlikely you will be allowed to resit. To be allowed to appeal, you would have to use a space on your caf to apply and be rejected first.

Yes there is a good medical reason why my child was in pain and not stress at all and there was no pain before the exam. Feeling completely distraught. Need to speak to dr tomorrow and admissions office. Its too surreal, we ranked so high in mocks too. It was cem style
